Wayport is expansion of
its corporate presence in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
The expanded corporate office will drive Wayport’s vertical market
business, focused on specific areas where Wayport sees an opportunity
for growth in industries including hospitality, healthcare, retail,
managed services and others.
Wayport’s CEO, President, CFO, General
Counsel, SVP of Corporate Development, VP of Marketing and Business
Development and VP/GMs for each vertical market and their respective
teams will be based in this office to drive business and provide easy
access for employees, customers, partners and investors. In addition,
Wayport will construct a “Demonstration Center” in the new office to
showcase applications and software the company supports on its network
of nearly 14,000 locations in 32 countries. In all, approximately 45
employees will be based in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
The expansion will provide Wayport with two very important physical
locations in Texas: Dallas and Austin. The company’s engineering and
operations will remain in its Austin, Texas, office including the CTO,
VP of Operations, VP of Engineering, VP of McDonald’s and VP of Human
Resources and their respective teams. With the move of 45 employees to
the Dallas area, approximately 250 employees will remain in Austin,
giving Wayport more room to expand in its facility on 4509 Freidrich
Lane as the operation grows. Wayport also has operations in Copenhagen,
Denmark, and has 350 employees worldwide.
“Our expansion in the Dallas area demonstrates our commitment to our
employees, customers, partners, investors and community that Wayport
will be best positioned to deliver valuable services to a broad range of
vertical markets, helping them to improve operational efficiencies and
enhance their business capabilities,” said Dave Vucina, CEO of Wayport.
“With Dallas being one of the nation’s largest cities and travel hubs,
it will provide easy access for our customers and investors and give us
two great Texas facilities to strengthen our position for acquisitions
and recruiting, making the company stronger.”
Wayport is looking at several locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth
Metroplex for their new office. Exact details of the location will be
announced when the lease is finalized. Relocating employees will move
